Depending on the age of your computer, most new (2 years) have the USB2 ports. Try a new USB wire.

My printer is plugged into one of the two usb ports at the front but I got a message saying it would run faster if it was plugged into a high speed port which when I checked it says I have 8 of but where...


Usually the main usb ports for the pc will be on the rear panel of the machine. If you feel safe to do so, switch the machine off and unplug from the power source, remove the side of the machine and touch a piece of bare metal on the chassis to remove any static build up in your body, then have a look around on your mainboard, try to trace the cable from the front usb connections to the mainboard, and see if there is a usb2 version of the socket which they are plugged into, swapping to this may solve your problem.

Hope this has been helpful.

My computer tells me that if my wireless adaptor was plugged into a different USB root hub it would work faster. How is this done?


Try plugging the wireless adapter into one of the usb slots on the back of the computer. If it still shows that message, I wouldn't worry. The difference in speed is negligible at best. hope this helps

I need to upgrade my usb port 1.1 to 2.0


The easiest way for you to do this is to get a USB 2.0 pci card and install it into the computer. Here is one that is available for $10

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815124008&cm_re=usb_2.0_pci_card-_-15-124-008-_-Product

These are fairly easy to install. It does require you to open the computer case. Remember to unplug the computer from the electricity before starting and properly ground yourself before touching any components in the case(static electricity can damage them). You should use a grounding strap that hooks to your wrist and attatches to the case or touch the case each time before touching any components. Once the case is open you will need to locate an empty PCI slot. Then use a screwdriver to remove the metal "Blank" that is covering the opening at the back of the computer. Then you can insert the new card with the USB ports facing the back of the computer and use firm but gentle pressure to insert the card into the port. Once the card is fully seated secure it with the screw you removed from the blank. Then plug the computer back in and run any installation software that came with the card if required and that is it.

USB


UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS(USB) - is the most common type of computer port used in today's computers. It can be used to connect keyboards, mice, game controllers, printers, scanners, digital cameras, and removable media drives, just to name a few. With the help of a few USB hubs, you can connect up to 127 peripherals to a single USB port and use them all at once (though that would require quite a bit of dexterity).

USB is also faster than older ports, such as serial and parallel ports. The USB 1.1 specification supports data transfer rates of up to 12Mb/sec and USB 2.0 has a maximum transfer rate of 480 Mbps. Though USB was introduced in 1997, the technology didn't really take off until the introduction of the Apple iMac (in late 1998) which used USB ports exclusively. It is somewhat ironic, considering USB was created and designed by Intel, Compaq, Digital, and IBM. Over the past few years, USB has become a widely-used cross-platform interface for both Macs and PCs.

Hi-speed USB host


this means that you do not have a USB 2 port or do not have the USB2 drivers installed correctly if it does,

check your chipset drivers and spec of laptop with manufacturers.

if you do not have usb2 you can get a USB 2 PCMCIA card to supply this functionallity.

it is possible this is a USB low power issue as this is a laptop, but check your drivers and spec first.

Usb ports


Go into your Device Manager (you didn`t say which OS).
Under USB you should have something like Enhanced Host controller.
That is USB2.
If you haven`t got it, your on USB1.
Normally if you only have USB1, and you plug a USB2 capable
device in, you will be told `this device could perform faster`.

Dell precision not recognising usb 2.0


sounds not,  some of the older systems only have 1.1, Usb 2 is not all that old (about 2-3 years).
you can upgrade to USB2 bu adding a USB2 PCI card to your system, this would give you some ports on the back and it may be possible to link the ports on the front to the new PCI card to upgrade those as well (depending on how they are connected to the mobo)
you can get USB2 cards with a Pin header which would allow for a pin block connection.
